YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES

 

Subject to certain restrictions, California residents have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect about you, to delete any personal information that we collected from or maintain about you, and to opt-out of the sale of personal information about you. As a California resident, you also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests, including our means of verifying your identity. If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us either through our email at [email protected] or call us toll-free at (833) 982-1978.our

 

Accessing and Deleting Your Personal Information

 

  • Right to request access to your personal information

 

California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of personal information that we collect, use, disclose or sell about you. You may also request the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. However, we may withhold some information where the risk to you, your personal information, or our business is too great to disclose the information.

 

  • Right to request deletion of your personal information

 

You may also request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from/about you. However, we may retain personal information as authorized under applicable law, such as personal information required as necessary to provide our services, protect our business and systems from fraudulent activity, to debug and identify errors that impair existing functionality, as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, for scientific or historical research, for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations. We need certain types of information so that we can provide our services. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our services.

 

  • How to exercise your access and deletion rights

 

California residents may exercise their California privacy rights by submitting your request to us either through our email at [email protected] or call us toll-free at (833) 982-1978.

 

 

For security purposes, we may request additional information from you to verify your identity when you request to exercise your California privacy rights so we can reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected such personal information (or that person’s authorized representative).

 

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to an additional 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and the extension period in writing.  If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response through your account.  If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically as you so request.  Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.  We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

 

Once you submit a request to (1) access the categories of personal information we have about you or (2) obtain a copy of specific pieces of personal information we have about you, we will ask that you verify you identity by logging into your account using your username and password. There, we will provide you with your information in a password-protected format.

 

To request that we delete personal information we have collected from you, you will need to authenticate with us by first logging into your account using your user name and password on file with us and deleting your account, once you let us know you’ve taken this action we will initiate the deletion process.

 

If you wish to exercise any of these rights and do not have an account with us, please contact us either through our email at [email protected] or call us toll-free at (833) 982-1978

and we will request additional information to perform identity verification where possible.

 

Sales of Personal Information

 

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. The Company does not “sell” your personal information as we understand that term to be defined by the CCPA and its implementing regulations.

 

Non-Discrimination Rights

 

California residents have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising their rights as described in this section. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.
